Hi, I have two Sun T2000 servers running Solaris (5.10 Generic_127127-11 sun4v sparc SUNW,SPARC-Enterprise–T2000)

Each T2000 has 2 available GbE NICs

I want to connect these to a NetApp storage system (via brocade vdx copper switches)

Can I use etherchannel on the Solaris for more bandwidth and failover?

It's called "link aggregation" on Solaris and is configured using the "dladm" command. Consult the manpage or search google for examples on how to do this.

On a T2000, it requires the use of the e1000g NIC driver, so your patchlevel must be high enough to make this work.
